Have a donut and some coffee
While you are supposed to be working

Leave me alone

For a computer programming class, I sat directly across from someone, and our computers were facing away from each other. A few minutes into the class, she got up to leave the room. I reached between our computers and switched the inputs for the keyboards.

She came back and started typing and immediately got a distressed look on her face.

She called the teacher over and explained that no matter what she typed, nothing would happen. The teacher tried everything. By this time I was hiding behind my monitor and quaking red- faced.

I started to type, 'Leave me alone!'

The kid got real upset. 'I didn't do anything to it, I swear!' It was all I could do to keep from laughing out loud. The conversation between them and HAL 2000 went on for an amazing five minutes.

Me: 'Don't touch me!'

Her: 'I'm sorry, I didn't mean to hit your keys that hard.'

Me: 'Who do you think you are anyway?!' Etc. Finally, I couldn't contain myself any longer and fell out of my chair laughing.

After they had realized what I had done, they both turned beet red.

Funny, I never got more than a C- in that class.
